Attachment is critical to healthy relationships. When a child comes to your care with a history of trauma, you can tell him that he is safe, wanted, and loved, but that isn’t always enough. Sometimes, there is a disconnect between thoughts and feelings and that can become the foundation for an insecure attachment, leading to problem behaviors, power struggles, difficulty in school, and other behaviors that you may not understand.
In this training, participants will learn strategies to help children in their care bring their thoughts and feelings into alignment and how to help them begin to create connections that will last a lifetime.
